|This month Minnie is exploring the alphabet by digging out the unusual, often unexplained and alternative way of thinking. Stories of creatures, places and mysteries that have been passed down to us through centuries tease our imagination, live in our dreams and dare us to explore the impossible. Join Minnie each day as she discovers something unusual in the alphabet.|
|"The phrase --Give us our daily bread-- has taken on a new meaning."|
Six years after a Florida woman auctioned off a partially eaten grilled cheese sandwich bearing the image of the Virgin Mary on e-bay for 28,000 dollars, a Vermont man introduced a toaster that sears the image of Christ on each and every slice it toasts. After hearing about the Virgin Mary grilled cheese sandwich he designed the Jesus toaster which uses patented radiated heat technology to toast the face of Christ on any variety of daily bread, from plain white to whole grain. Thanks to the new Jesus Toaster, you can have the body of Christ with your daily bread. This is not the only kind of wonder bread that seems to popping up all over.
In February 2006, Mike Thompson of Ohio claimed to have found the image of Jesus on his breakfast pancake and immediately listed it for sale on Ebay. His listing got nationwide media coverage and reached a high bid of just under $15,000. The pancake was subsequently proven to be a hoax produced by the use of the “Jesus pan” available at jesuspan.com. The face of Mother Teresa was claimed to have been identified in a cinnamon bun at Bongo Java in Nashville, Tennessee on 15 October 1996. Dubbed the "NunBun" by the press, it was turned into an enterprise by the company, selling T-shirts and mugs, which led to an exchange of letters between the company and Mother Teresa's representatives. On 25 December 2005 the bun was stolen during a break-in at the coffee house.
Maybe not so mystical, but it is definitely interesting how are “Minds-eye” works to create religious images out of everyday normal things. Have you seen Jesus today?
